Did you know that registering to become an organ and tissue donor can save the lives of eight people and enhance the lives of up to fifty more? When you consider this fact, the gift of donation becomes even more profound.
It is a federal regulation that all families be offered the opportunity to donate when a loved dies, though this is obviously a difficult time for family members to make decisions like this. You can ease the burden on them by making the decision for yourself and registering as donor. Just be sure to share your decision with your family members, and find out what their own wishes about donation are.
For additional information, feel free to call us at (503) 808-7070. To register to become a donor, visit www.donatelifenw.org or register when you renew your license at the DMV. One decision you make now could change the lives of many.
From loss can come hope. Sharing stories are an inspirational way to honor any donor. That's why we encourage donor families and cornea recipients to share how eye donation has touched their lives. For more information about how to share your story, please call us at (503) 808-7070.
Lions VisionGift depends upon the generous financial donations from the community and private funding. Your contribution will go towards making cornea transplants possible as well as advancing the safety and efficacy of cornea transplantation for people around the world.
We also accept memorial donations as they are a meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of a loved one.
